Sorry about the presentation here, monsieur_h - looks like I have some work to do for handling long lines of content. I will resolve this as quickly as I can.

No problem, as it works fine with the .pdf version, wich I'm gonna print for my exam anyway. I'm glad you did this tool and I'll use it for my revisions.

Hi there, good CS
I more like this CS if has more info about how much ip and host in range of /30, /29, /24, .. /3 etc.

I need to let you know about a few errors i saw that may effect the test your taking.

First TCP/UDP are layer 4 technologies. They both involve the transport of data. TCP being Transport Control Protocol and UDP being User Datagram Protocol.

Your placement of router switch and hub should also be corrected. The Hub and switch are both layer two devices that operate on the Data Link Layer they communicate through a mac address which is a layer two technology.

The difference between the two being that a switch is 1 broadcast domain and seperate collision domains and a Hub is 1 broadcast domain and 1 collision domain. Also the hub is unable to operate in full duplex mode.

Routers are layer 3 devices. They comunicate with ip addresses using routing protocols. Just wanted to give you a heads up if your using it for test

OSI - protocol - device section
is wrong.

OSI part needs some work, as what was said previously.

4 years and the OSI layers / protocols still totally wrong...
